About the Event


Fortran is used a lot in the context of HPC. For many, it has a reputation of being an old and ugly programming language. However, modern Fortran is a far cry from Fortran 77 that its detractors have in mind. Fortran 2003/2008 is a language that is well tailored towards scientific computing. This training introduces the language and its features.
